The monk has no more intense desire than the glorification of God and this is carried out in the communal celebration of the OPUS DEI (Liturgy of the Hours). That is why the Liturgy is the most important element in the daily life of a monastery.
The monk, although he distances himself from the world, nevertheless does not abandon it. The joys and hopes, sorrows and anguish of men are made his by his union with Christ, thus the monk participates in the salvation of the world by remaining with Christ who prays to the Father.
Seven times a day summoned by the bell, we gather in church to address this prayer of praise to God.
